Melaleuca from Frank VanderSloot is found at melaleuca.com.
It’s a multi-level marketing or MLM health and beauty aids company.
They focus on recruiting more and more downline recruiters rather than selling their products.
It would just barely brush the border of a pyramid scheme if it wasn’t for the actual product being there.
Stating right from the start it was very easy to find a multitude of complaints, rip off-site reports, and negative reviews about Melaleuca.
As well as Melaleuca’s cult-like reps and allegations of the products being very unsafe.
These are all red flags to be wary of…
Mostly, the primary issue we have with MLM businesses like Melaleuca is that the majority of people, 95%+, that get involved in any MLM business opportunities will never succeed at them.
And this is certainly no exception.
Many complaints about Melaleuca deal with sales team misrepresentations when trying to recruit people.
But some of the most disturbing issues registered online have been of actual unauthorized charges made to the credit cards people used to get involved with the company.
Money spent with no forthcoming products was the next most daunting issue I found that was complained about.
This was by enough people for it to be more than worrisome.
The next problem was with reps taking the money and calling it a consulting fee.
This was after they told you initially it was to buy your first line of products.
Then there are grievances about people canceling their involvement with Melaleuca.
Yet still getting charged by them on their credit cards for months and months afterward.
Several of their products actually list warnings of being hazardous to your health, as well as the danger of toxicities.
Melaleuca reps are told not to say Melaleuca products are non-toxic, but to say they are non-caustic.
I have no idea why anyone would have anything to do with this company knowing all of these things.
This is more an issue of integrity.
This is just making excuses for a bad company selling bad products.
Overpriced products at that.
Selling an MLM business is hard enough without all of these extra difficulties added on top.
However you slice it, Melaleuca.com is definitely not a business we will ever recommend.
Thanks for reading our Melaleuca review.
